We can only live in the current moment that changes are taking place.


That doesn't mean anything. Any "current moment" is gone instantly. There is no living in it because living requires reflection and planning. Especially for humans and in fact most animals.

A mouse runs from a snake.
A human saves in a 401k.

Those are both reactions to the past and acting on the future.

An amoeba perhaps lives as you claims. It moves from threats and reacts to food. There is no past and no future.
